Quartet of Game Culture “Discovering a New Peace of Mind – Mental Health in Videogames”

Topic


The QDSK is being funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
This edition in cooperation with the Hamburg Games Conference is entitled “Dicovering a New Peace of Mind – Mental Health in Videogames” and will focus on which impact videogames can have in the field of mental health.

Conference Speaker
Quartet of Game Culture

The Foundation For Digital Games Culture wants to help shaping the digitalization process through games. The foundation understands digital games as an enrichment of cultural identity, because they are a recognizable cultural asset.
The Quartet of Game Culture (Quartett der Spielekultur / QDSK) therefore focuses on the feuilletonistic, cultural, but also socio-political aspects of video games.
The QDSK is being funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
